SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) has appointed Los Gatos Town Manager Greg Larson to the California Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB).
“Greg Larson is a committed local government manager on the front line of public service,” said Pérez. “I’m confident his experience will be of great value to the Sex Offender Management Board.”
Larson, 54, has served as Town Manager of Los Gatos since 2007. Previously he worked as Chief Deputy Controller for the State of California, Director of Planning and Development for the City of Santa Cruz, and he served as City Manager of Milpitas. Larson has also served for 2 years as CEO of United Way of Silicon Valley. Larson will fill the SOMB seat designated for the Assembly to fill with a city manager.
The 15 member SOMB works under the jurisdiction of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and serves as a resource for the Legislature and the Governor. The SOMB addresses any issues, concerns, and problems related to the community management of the state’s adult sex offenders, with a goal of safer communities and reduced victimization. It is required to conduct a thorough assessment of current management practices for adult sex offenders, submit a report of their assessment to the Legislature, and develop recommendations to improve management practices for those offenders.
